Local Happenings~Art and Entertainment

By
Real Estate Agent with Windermere Peninsula Properties

What's there to do? A question heard over and over. Before moving to a new area or even after having lived in an area for awhile, you might ask this question. If you enjoy music and the arts, I would suggest checking out Collective Visions Gallery in downtown Bremerton at the corner of  4th & Pacific AVE. The gallery is celebrating its 13th Anniversary this month, November 2008. Each year it seems to get bigger and better. The gallery participates in an artwalk held the 1st Friday of each month from 5 - 8 pm. There is always something new to see, and many of the artists are there to talk to. Visit the gallery's website for a list of events and participating artists.  www.collectivevisions.com

Another unique feature of the gallery is the Concert Series. Musicians ranging from the Blues, to Jazz, and Classical, all are professional and many are internationally known.  The concert series runs from September through June. The concert is usually held on the 3rd Friday of the month from 7 - 9 pm. The Gallery provides an intimate setting with great musicians performing, and it's reasonably priced and very close to where you live.  Why not check it out? Here's the schedule:

 

November 21     Jamie Sieber  **Electric cellist, vocalist and composer

December 19      Carolyn Caruso  **Vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist

January 16          Pearl Django  **The premier hot club jazz style group

February 20        Patrick and Sophia Stoyanovich  **A father and daughter piano and violin recital

March 20            Judith Alexandra "Alex" Miller  **Classic mezzo soprano sings German lieder

April 18               Mark Lewis and Mark Levine  **A reunion of San Francisco jazz players

May 8                  Island Jazz Quartet  **Jazz standards and hot songs by Maggie Laird

June 19               Akemi Uchida  **Violin solo of contemporary compositions

 

Advance prices vary $13 - $20.  Call 360-377-8327 or contact me for more information
